National recording artist Gregory Alan Isakov will perform at Groovin’ in the Garden at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden on Thursday, October 12th, the organization announced this week. A horticulturist and musician, Isakov has cast an impressive presence on the indie-rock and folk worlds with his five full-length studio albums, including one nominated for a Grammy award for Best Folk Album. The opening act for the evening is the indie band Lucius.
This show is presented by Broadberry Entertainment Group and is a pilot concert to explore the possibility of a Groovin’ series return. Tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday, August 25th, at 10 a.m. Physical tickets will also be on sale at Plan 9 Records.
The location of the concert is the Cochrane Rose Garden at Lewis Ginter. Gates open at 6 p.m., and the show starts at 7 p.m. Food and drink will be available for purchase in the Garden (outside food and drink are not allowed to be brought in.) Lawn chairs and blankets are permitted; however, no tents or canopies. The concert is rain or shine; no refunds.
The Groovin’ in the Garden concert series began in 1999 and continued at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden through 2013. “Groovin’ concerts were much-loved by our community,” said Brian Trader, President and CEO of Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. “We’re excited to work with Broadberry Entertainment Group on this special concert and we feel Gregory Alan Isakov is a great fit for our venue.”
Ticket holders are encouraged to carpool and rideshare. The non-profit Garden is located at 1800 Lakeside Avenue in Lakeside. Learn more and purchase tickets online here.
